Here’s what aromatherapy is all about.

Is Aromatherapy Medicine?

Aromatherapy is a therapy that uses essential oils and aromas from natural ingredients such as plants to treat illnesses and wounds and to relax the mind and body.

Aromatherapy is a folk remedy, but it is not homeopathy at all. It is scientifically recognized that essential oils have various properties that affect the physiological functions of the body depending on the type.

Today, it is used in a variety of applications such as depression, stress, insomnia, pain relief, disinfection, and antibacterial.

Looking back on history, aromatherapy has been adopted as a traditional remedy all over the world, including Europe and Arabia. See the “History of Aromatherapy” article for its history.
